All myrtlewood for high energy sound. Breedlove’s most popular USA crafted guitars.
With its hypnotic, variegated color patterns and unique sonic clarity, melding, somehow, the best aspects of rosewood, mahogany and maple, myrtlewood would qualify as one of the great exotic tonewoods. But it’s native! It grows—gnarled, strong and beautiful—on Oregon’s rainy, windswept Pacific coast, just 90 miles from Bend. Breedlove, in fact, led the charge in using myrtle for fine guitars, and that proud lineage continues with the best-selling Oregon series. Denser than Sitka spruce, myrtlewood—as a result of Sound Optimization—can be planed and sanded even thinner, releasing more energy for a balanced profile alive with bass, midrange and treble in equal measure. Now available in all four revolutionary Breedlove body styles, and with contemporary soft cutaways, each Oregon series guitar—in Cinnamon Burst, Bourbon Burst or Natural finish—is equipped with LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics and comes with a deluxe Breedlove hardshell case.
The Oregon Concert CE Myrtlewood – Myrtlewood is a versatile play style acoustic-electric guitar that has become an instant favorite with players around the world. The Breedlove sound comes through bold and clean with balanced bass, mids, and highs reminiscent of rosewood. Engineered to perfection, this guitar is equally suited as a strumming and rhythm guitar or as a nuanced fingerstyle masterpiece. The maple neck complements the myrtlewood in tonal perfection. Myrtlewood is locally sourced in the Pacific Northwest – a short distance from where they are hand-crafted in small batches by our dedicated craftsmen. A soft cutaway allows for easy access to the entire ebony fretboard. The myrtlewood sound stays true when amplified through the highly reliable LR Baggs EAS VTC electronics. You will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove Oregon Series guitar.
